Thyme is a instrumental track that is used in Perhaps. Or have I misunderstood it?

Oh hey - I counted right!

From a March 2001 Brazilian Journal interview with Beta:

Quote

Q: How is the new record going to be?

Beta: So great. I'm emotionally related to them but I think it will be amazing. It will be released in June or July. They already have 48 songs and the record company is selecting the material.

I always thought Axl was full of shit when he said they had 3 albums worth of material, I was very wrong!

yes and no.

I bet a big chunk of these are just instrumentals. so more likely like 2 albums + some instrumental leftovers. that seems more likely to me.

There was a title i remember, Eulogy of a Broken Heart, but it turned out to be another song or a fake title maybe?

Agreed. I feel releasable items could be even last than an album.

More like EP including these 5 tracks:

Atlas, Hard School, The General, Soul Monster & Going Down.

Wrong way around....Oklahoma turned into Berlin.

 

Here's all we know about Oklahoma......it was played for a Rolling Stone reporter in 1999, as an instrumental.   But Axl says it was inspired by the Oklahoma bombings that happened while he was in court fighting about something with his ex-wife Erin Everly, and he found it ironic or something that all those people were dead, and they were fighting over petty shit in court.  Actually what he said was "These people want to destroy me" so it's most likely more "oh man the whole world is out to get Axl Rose boo hoo" kinda stuff.

 

As for WHY it's called Berlin now?   Nobody knows.

 

Axl revealed that fact during one of the 2008 chats here, after CD dropped.  Someone sent him a list of working titles, and he removed all the bogus ones, and confirmed the ones that were legit.  Oklahoma was legit, but he simply said "It's called Berlin now."

And that's that.  That's all we've ever learned about this song in 20 years.

Removed “Leave Me Alone”, “Broken” and “Today, Tomorrow, Forever” and re-added “Motormouth” - also added the untitled Tommy Stinson demos from the locker

We’re still at 48

Since “Curly Shuffle” is apparently a cover, I wonder if the reworked “Knockin on Heaven’s Door” was submitted to the label in 2000

Was it ever confirmed that 3 Dollar Pyramid and Better were one and the same? Or did someone just make that up to get attention?
